Because committees are working through the next iteration of the plan, parent feedback is vital now.
Preparing for Fall 2020
Welcome to the 2020/21 academic year!
Safety must come first this year and safety is a community effort. To ensure that we plan prudently and thoughtfully, we are continually monitoring guidance from local public health authorities and consulting our Medical Advisory Team.
Information on flu shots for the family, monthly COVID-19 testing for Grades PK-3, and Distance Learning.
We find ourselves in an emotionally complicated and fragile moment, one that promotes alienation and misunderstanding. To serve our children, we are called to seek new ways to connect and solve the complex problems before us.
Our priority continues to be doing everything we can to keep our community as safe as possible. As we begin seeing more opportunities to get out and meet people, it is important that we remember to maintain healthy habits and practices, on and off campus, in order to keep Sidwell Friends moving forward.
I am writing to share an update that we are now ready to move into the full hybrid mode across all grades. Since my last communication on October 8, the Board of Trustees has met multiple times and, after conferring with the Medical Advisory Team (MAT), has decided to expedite our return to in-person learning.
